Volunteer Systems/CEI

From an easier joining and renewal process, to improved resources for volunteers, these interactive and user-friendly improvements are all about better serving Girl Scouts members.

To start this exciting process we have a new refreshed GSSA website, a brand new Girl Scout Member Community, Volunteer Toolkit, and the Activities tab.

The Girl Scout Member Community provides easy-to-access services such as managing your personal profiles, updating membership status, and browsing and registering for events through the new Activities tab.

The Volunteer Toolkit is a digital resource designed to make it dramatically easier for troop leaders to manage their troop, prepare for and lead meetings, and connect with other volunteers and parents.

The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a digital resource that supports troop leaders and co-leaders, making the process of running a troop easier and more efficient. Check out some of the toolkit’s top features below. Then watch the video playlist above for a detailed walk-through.

Through the VTK, troop leaders can:
  • Plan the troop’s calendar year

  • Email parents with one click.

  • View the troop roster, renew girls’ membership, and update their contact information.

  • View Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Journeys and badges to plan for troop meetings.
        o There are three prepopulated year plans in the VTK for Daisy, 
  • Brownie, and Junior leaders, with 15 meetings each.

  • Customize meetings by troop year with other badge and Journey options.

  • NEW! Access the VTK as a multilevel troop (troops with a mix of girls in Daisy, Brownie, and Junior levels).

  • Explore individual meeting plans that show a breakdown of every meeting, including a list of the materials needed, and editable time allotments for each activity within a meeting.

  • Record girls’ attendance at meetings and their badge and Journey achievements.

  • Add council or custom troop events to the troop’s calendar.

  • Enter the troop’s finances (depending on the council’s process).

  • Easily locate resources, such as Safety Activity Checkpoints.

  • NEW! Access 18 activities that now include a “Get Outside” option, which provides alternative outdoor options.
Through the VTK, parents can:
  • Parents can now access the VTK to see what their girl’s troop or group is doing (e.g, meeting information and which badges and Journeys she is working on).

  • Parents can also view the troop’s finances (depending on the council’s process).
